In an interview with the Financial Times, Trump said he would discuss the issue at his Florida resort later this week in his first meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

"China has great influence over North Korea. And China will either decide to help us with North Korea, or they won't," Trump said in the Oval Office. "If they do, that will be very good for China, and if they don't, it won't be good for anyone.

"Well if China is not going to solve North Korea, we will," Trump added. "That is all I am telling you."

Trump continued that it was "totally" possible for the U.S. to act unilaterally, but when pressed what that could mean, he responded, "I don't have to say any more. Totally."
The White House viewed North Korea as "the most imminent threat" to the U.S. following warnings from former President Barack Obama over gains North Korea had made in long-range missiles and nuclear weapons, according to The Financial Times.
